Description

Russian POW's and a few civilian internees (in the back row) stand in their barrack at Norderstapel. The accommodations are very cramped and spartan. With benches aligning the two dormitory aisles, inmates enjoy little privacy, especially with their adjoined bunks. There are few prisoner possessions in the photograph. Note the large bowls suspended by wires above the bunks which were used for sanitation and hygiene.
